Ack! More Ends to Weave In!

I really have to make myself do some finishing work...weaving in ends, steaming/ironing. Here is your first look at my Serenity from Rowan Studio 15, a cropped cardi. The pattern shows it with a lace collar motif. As I was knitting it, I was pretty sure I would skip that which is a good thing as I doubt I'd have had enough yarn! (I did add 6 rows to the sleeves.) The collar bit would have been nice for covering up the shaping around the neckline, but I think it will be ok, especially after a little steaming.

I am trying to decide what sort of button to pick out...hoping something will catch my eye the next time I'm at Sakonnet Purls.

This was so quick to knit as I cast on the night of July 28th, and only really got going on it on the 29th. I cast off the last stitch last night!

Now that's a perfect pattern- quick and cute. SP has so many buttons you'll be sure to find just the right one.

Wow that knit up so fast! The color is so pretty (but I am biased). I hope you get your finishing done so you can enjoy all these pretty tops!
